The Northern Trust Golf Tips: Our top trader’s two big value best bets at TPC Boston this week

Our golf trader Iain McLoughlin is back with some more big value punts for this week.


The PGA Tour rolls into TPC Boston for this weekend’s main event with some of the world’s best teeing off on Thursday for a share of the $9,500,000 purse. TPC Boston is a 71 par, 7,300 yard course with three par fives that should throw up some more entertainment after the Wyndham Championship last weekend. So, let’s try and find some value at The Northern Trust.

You can watch Iain’s preview with PPTV in full and read on to see his tips in summary, along with our handy betting widgets.

Matthew Wolff

Matthew Wolff was fourth at the PGA Championship and had an incredible week with his long game there. With a lukewarm putter he would have probably won the tournament, given his work getting to the greens was so good.

He missed four really good birdie chances on the back nine on Sunday and was eventually beaten by three shots. If he holes them he’s probably the champion and a lot shorter odds here.

He’s usually a very solid putter and just had a bit of an off week from close range at the PGA Championship. With his putting likely to improve I think he’s a really, really solid bet this week.

Hideki Matsuyama

Next up is Hideki Matsuyama who was 22nd at the PGA Championship. His iron play wasn’t up to his usual high standard there but he’s consistently a really high level, top-echelon ball striker.

The encouraging sign was the improvement in his putting. He gained 1.4 strokes putting, that’s his first positive games strokes putting figure since February.

If he continues that upward trend with his putter and gets back to his usual standard with the irons I think he’ll be a really big player come Sunday evening in Boston.
